Microwave Oven Fire in Chipley Home?

3/16/2022 (Permalink)

A microwave oven sits on a kitchen counter. We are trusted leaders in fire restoration services in Okaloosa County.

Microwave ovens make heating or defrosting a meal easy for busy Chipley families. SERVPRO® of Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, Chipley offers these microwave oven safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • PURCHASE a microwave oven that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory. Make sure to complete and return the product registration card. This way, the manufacturer can reach you if there is a recall on the product.
  • PLUG the microwave oven directly into the wall outlet — never use an extension cord
  • MAKE sure the microwave oven is at a safe height, within easy reach of all users
  • OPEN food slowly, away from the face. Hot steam or the food itself can cause burns.
  • FOOD heats unevenly in microwave ovens. Stir and test before eating or giving to children.
  • NEVER heat a baby bottle in the microwave. Since a microwave oven heats unevenly, it can create hot pockets, leading to burns. Warm the bottle in a bowl of warm, not hot or boiling, water, or by running it under the tap.
